* Baseball senior Anthony Critelli notched the 20th home run of his career against Navy Sunday, tying him for third all-time in program history.                                          

* Softball junior Katy Watson pitched in nine innings through three appearances over the weekend as she held a 2.33 ERA with six strikeouts, while earning a win and her first career save. 

* The women’s rowing varsity eight defeated Patriot League opponent Colgate on Lake Quinsigamond on April 2. 

* The women’s tennis team defeated Franklin Pierce winning all nine matches.
